Meet Our Team

Gordon Dental of Leawood emphasizes their care to Implant Dentistry and Cosmetic Dentistry for the Johnson County area but also serves general Family dentistry as well. We treat people who are missing one tooth and want it replaced, up to someone needing to replace all their teeth with a better looking and functioning solution. We make our process special by listening to our patients wants and needs, then coming up with a plan that is specific to those needs while considering our patients budgetary plan and life scenarios. This and our high technology and use of the latest and greatest dental advancements makes our office different than the traditional dental approach. Our services can include all aspects of the dental process so there may not be a need to go to many offices, just one place for all your needs.
